How to make an ordered list

Hi all! New week starting off great! SO we're here with more handy-dandy blog tips, SEO advice(search engine optimization), the scoop on easy HTML and all news on technical features and softwares.. or for short: Technical Support, as everybody already knows it:)


The topic for today is: how to make an ordered list!

This tutorial is going to be useful for those of you that hold giveaways and contests, but not only. I will explain how to create a numbered list, or ordered list, that makes it easier for you bloggers to introduce the people who enter your contests in it, or rank some winners in a contest, etc.

It's so easy you will wonder why didn't you do this earlier:) *I do that sometimes:P* Anyway.. Here's how it's done: you first need to open and close the list with these HTML tags:

Then you need to add this tag before and after every participant's name:


And that's kind of it:) Here's how it will look like when written in HTML:


And here's how it will turn out to be in real text:

  1. entry 1

  2. entry 2

  3. entry 3

Easy, right? Now this will make life easier for those who hold contests, giveaways and other blog things that require ranking of any type:) Now that's it for today! Hope it helped!! Check back to see what comes up next in Blogger tutorial section, SEO tips department or how we teach new HTML tricks & tips every day!

I learned this from the book, Blogging For Dummies but what's so hard about just numbering your list? I really don't see the advantage to bothering with the tags.
